Even though the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) deliberated in the Annual General Meeting (AGM) on 24th Dec on the potential inclusion of cricket in the 2028 Olympics in Los Angeles, it deferred taking a stand on it.
During its 89th AGM in Ahmedabad, the Board officials agreed to further discuss it at a special general meeting, which is likely scheduled to take place in early 2021. Although most of the board officials saying they were positive about the inclusion of cricket in the Games, the BCCI formally agreed to clarify a few significant details.
The BCCI wants to clarify whether it has to give up its autonomy and be part of the Indian Olympic Association before taking a call for the Olympics, and there is also confusion regarding the revenue-sharing arrangement.
While Sourav Ganguly, BCCI Chief was unable to comment, some officials disclosed that before taking a final call, the Board wanted to draught all the factors. A senior official said that there's still time for the Games, so they wanted to be completely sure about everything and then make a decision about it. In due course of time, they will decide on it.
